The variety of products derived from milk, without or with lactose, encourages the development of more effective analytical techniques that can be applied to the quality control of both the production line and the final products. Thus, in this work an efficient and minimally invasive method for the detection of lactose was proposed, using a biosensor containing the enzyme lactase (LAC) immobilised on carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that, when reacting with lactose, emit an electrochemical signal. This biosensor was connected to a potentiostat, and its electrochemical cell was composed of the following three electrodes: reference electrode (Ag/AgCl), auxiliary electrode (platinum wire), and working electrode (biosensor) on which graphite (carbon) paste (CP), CNTs, and LAC were deposited. The transmission electron microscopy and scanning electron microscopy were used in the characterisation of the composite morphology, indicating excellent interactions between the CNTs and LAC. The sensitivity of the CP/LAC/CNT biosensor was determined as 5.67 μA cm−2.mmol−1 L and detection limits around 100 × 10−6 mol L−1 (electrode area = 0.12 cm2) and an increase in the stability of the system was observed with the introduction of CNTs because, with about 12 h of use, there was no variation in the signal (current). The results indicate that the association between the CNTs and LAC favoured the electrochemical system.

Abstract This study describes a method for the simultaneous determination of galactose, glucose, lactose and galactooligosaccharides (GOS) in GOS raw materials (GOS syrups and powdered GOS) by high-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAEC-PAD). The GOS raw materials were extracted with phosphate buffer. The extract was then treated with β-galactosidase to hydrolyze GOS and lactose. The total amounts of galactose and glucose released from GOS and lactose...

Abstract There is an increasing need for rapid, low cost, reusable, reliable and sensitive detection systems for diagnosing infectious diseases, metabolic disorders, rapidly advancing cancers and detecting the presence of environmental pollutants. Most traditional methods are invasive, slow, expensive and laborious, requiring highly specialized instruments. Introduction of biosensors with nanomaterials as transducers of signals have helped in removing the disadvantages associated with traditiona...

Abstract In this paper, a novel procedure for receiving enzyme biosensor based on the cheap and functional silica/lignin (SiO 2 /Lig) hybrid material is presented. In this study, a functional biohybrid SiO 2 /Lig was selected to conduct the immobilization of glucose oxidase (GOx) by adsorption on its surface. The immobilized amount of GOx at SiO 2 /Lig was 25.28 mg g −1 , twice as much compared to its amount at non-functionalized SiO 2 . The system of GOx-SiO 2 /Lig was combined with single-wall...

Abstract The present study aimed to work out a high yield procedure for immobilization of Aspergillus oryzae β- galactosidase on polyaniline cobalt multiwalled carbon nanotubes nanocomposite (PANI/Co/MWCNTNC) by physical adsorption and covalent attachment via glutaraldehyde. The binding was confirmed by scanning and transmission electron microscopy along with Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy. The immobilization yields obtained for adsorbed and cross-linked enzymes were 93% and 97%, respec...
Few reports describe the effect of lactose hydrolysis on the properties of milk powder during production and storage. Hence, the aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of five different levels of enzymatic lactose hydrolysis during the production and storage of milk powder. As the lactose hydrolysis rate increased, adhesion to the drying chamber also increased, due to higher levels of particle agglomeration. Additionally, more brown powder was obtained when the lactose hydrolysis rate was...

Abstract Many industries are striving for the development of more reliable and robust β-galactosidase biosensors that exhibit high response rate, increased detection limit and enriched useful lifetime. In a newfangled technological atmosphere, a trivial advantage or disadvantage of the developed biosensor may escort to the survival and extinction of the industry. Several alternative strategies to immobilize β-galactosidase enzyme for their utilization in biosensors have been developed in recent ...

Abstract Lactose intolerance is the decreased ability to digest lactose, and the population involved is rapidly increasing all over the world. Different procedures have been reported in the literature to quantify lactose in dairy products, but the official method of analysis is based on enzymatic assay. In this paper, the effectiveness of two enzymatic kits in detecting residual lactose in lactose-free milk was investigated, and a comparison with two alternative chromatographic methods was done....

Abstract The purpose of the present work was to analyze the effect of trehalose, arabic and guar gums on the preservation of β-galactosidase activity in freeze-dried and vacuum dried Ca(II)-alginate beads. Freezing process was also studied as a first step of freeze-drying. Trehalose was critical for β-galactosidase conservation, and guar gum as a second excipient showed the highest conservation effect (close to 95%). Systems with Tg values ~ 40 °C which were stables at ambient temperature were o...

Abstract null null Lactase (β-galactosidase) is an important enzyme with applications in bioprocessing, diagnostics, and waste stream valorization, yet its performance is sensitive to environmental conditions. The thermal and pH stability of a lactase from Bifidobacterium bifidum was characterized in the presence of concentrated sugar solutions (trehalose, glucose, and sucrose, 40%, w/w). The protecting effect of sugars was most evident at 50 °C. Without the inclusion of sugars, lactase was inac...
Abstract null null Considerable biocompatibility, prospect of engineering the surface as per the deliberated application, and high accuracy of the results have driven the development of carbon nano tubes (CNTs) based biosensors. Enzyme catalyzed reactions occur under immensely milder physiological environments with high substrate specificity that minimizes the formation of side-products. Enzyme Immobilization represents the space-localization, or physical confinement of the enzymes that restrain...

Abstract In this work, an electrochemical approach for the quantitative detection of lactose in skimmed milk was proposed. To this end, a biosensor was developed from the immobilization of the enzyme lactase in the carbon nanotube matrix-carbon paste base. The paste from this association is deposited in the lower cavity of the working electrode, which together with the reference and auxiliary electrodes form the electrochemical cell operated from a potentiostat. The sensitivity and detection lim...
